gifted, 11.9

I made some fingerless bicycling mitts for a friend in a gorgeous pumpkin-ish colorway as a thank you. Crocheted up in a tube, I used the soft as butter and general favorite fiber (of mine!) Malabrigo Merino Worsted for these and I’m fairly pleased with the results.

Maybe I can convince the recipient to model them for the blog in the future. They’d look great photographed whilst wearer was holding an autumn ale.

What do you think?

(These mitts were inspired by the ah-mazing Sandra Juto, who makes delicious “Wrist Worms”. I took a look at photographs of her gorgeous creations and tried to recreate my own of sorts. Hers are better. Buy them here, or read her incredible blog.)
